Hub bearing cups ?

Anyone know of a source for replacement press in bearing cups in the UK ?

I recently acquired about 30 / 40 used wheels from a closed down bike shop and have been sorting through them, some good ones in there that just have pitted cups from being left standing outside , I've tested removing the old cups and they just punch out easily in most cases, the low end generic hubs seem to use a standard 30 mm od cup , it seems a waste to scrap good wheels just for a £1 bearing surface.

I wish I had access to a lathe because I was trained on one as an apprentice and turning, polishing and hardening such a simple item is not rocket science.

The only supplier I've found is in Australia where they are $1 each. http://www.bicyclepartswarehouse.com.au/subcategory_listing.php?&pagenum=1&prodsubcat_id=112&sort_type=partnum

Loch side.
Good luck with that. I've never seen them anywhere and I have tried. The ones you list seem to be cheapos - galvanised.
